Society Information

Australasian College for Emergency Medicine (ACEM)

The ACEM is an incorporated educational institution whose prime objective is the training and examination of specialist emergency physicians for Australia and New Zealand. 

ACEM has a vital interest in the quality of emergency medical care provided to the community and therefore has a wide range of subsidiary objectives relating to emergency department accreditation, policies and standards for the emergency medical system, teaching and research, publication, and those aspects of the medico political framework that have a direct impact on health outcomes for emergency patients.

Australasian Society for Emergency Medicine (ASEM)

The Society was established in 1981 by practitioners who foresaw the emergence of the specialty of emergency medicine and the future implications for the care of acutely ill patients attending hospital 'casualties'. From those beginnings emerged the Australasian College for Emergency Medicine, formally incorporated in 1984. The Society continues to provide a forum for discussion and debate on issues of relevance to emergency medicine.

The Society represents all medical practitioners interested in or who have an involvement in emergency medicine, and aims to promote an humanitarian approach to patients, and to promote fellowship and communication in the emergency medicine community.
